Talent and Rigour



After winning some honours such as “Best young Sommelier of France for Val de Loire wines” as well as two podiums for “Best young sommelier of France” and “Best young sommelier of French South-East wines”, Bruno DUKAN incorporated one of the most renowned table in France: “La Tour d'Argent” in Paris, working closely with the master sommelier David Ridgway. He evolved there with one of the most beautiful wine list in France, which included more than 14,000 references.

Enriched by this experience, he joined “L’Epuisette” in 2008 as Head Sommelier. Bruno DUKAN is very methodical and work with passion and rigour.


The wine menu is under his responsibility and includes wines from all regions of France and the world. His greatest pleasure is to share his discoveries: atypical wines, niche market wines, independent and renowned producers and this whole selection represents the strength and pride of « L’Epuisette ».
For this head sommelier, his career paths are a perpetual quest for new discoveries, inspiring himself from the flavours of the cuisine of Chef Guillaume Sourrieu.

The Wine Cellar:


The wine cellar is composed of more than 500 references and approximately 4000 bottles, maintained at the ideal and stable temperature of 11°C.

Its hygrometry is naturally regulated to 85% as the cellar is underground and situated at the same level as our beloved Mediterranean sea. The bottles are meticulously bathed in a neutral and dim-lighted atmosphere so as to optimize the ageing process of those wines.
